In-hospital management of hypoglycaemia

Hypoglycaemia affects significant patient numbers in Scotland each year.  Simple steps can aid earlier prevention, detection and action for patient benefit. 

 

Think, Check, Act guidance from Diabetes in Scotland (Diabetes Inpatient short Life working group) is embodied within scenario based resources, modelling protocol based care for those showing signs of in-hospital Hypoglycaemia.  


We would encourage all clinical staff to view these educational tools and apply to their own clinical practice.
